Standard Vanguard estate.
More information on this Standard:
This rarity was visible from the A34 in Newcastle under Lyme in 1994. The body was in pretty good nick and the fact that it was up on blocks near a tyre depot suggests some hope that it was restored. Did this Phase 1 or Phase 2 Standard get restored or did it end up in a nearby scrap yard?
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Standard above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Vanguard estate would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Standard Vanguard estate, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Vanguard estate, and similar old Standards, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
